Thessaloniki: Full-Day Bus Trip to Meteora

1. Thessaloniki: Full-Day Bus Trip to Meteora

Depart Thessaloniki in the morning and journey to the amazing monastery complex of Meteora to visit 2 of the 6 holy monasteries, depending on their operating schedule. Get access to holy sites such as the women's Monastery of Agios Stefanos with its impressive wood-carved iconostasis, or visit the Monastery of the Holy Trinity, perched on the top of a rocky precipice over 400 meters high. Alternatively, discover the tower of the old preserved net at the Monastery of Varlaam, or explore the largest of the monasteries at the Monastery of Great Meteoron. Take in panoramic views of these incredible structures and the stunning landscape. Enjoy a traditional Greek lunch in Kastraki, near the city of Kalampaka, before heading back to Thessaloniki.

Great trip if you want to go to Meteora for a day! I had only one day left on my trip to Thessaloniki and wanted to visit Meteora without the hassle of public transportation. This was a great option. The bus is very comfortable and you're able to charge your phones on it. The tour guide was also very informative. She told us many interesting facts throughout the ride to Meteora, often pointing out sights to see. While we only saw 2 monasteries, I personally think it is the perfect amount to see. (Of course, that depends on the person) This is an amazing trip if you want to spend just one day in Meteora and see a few of the monasteries. If you want to see all 6 monasteries and have lots of time to explore the town, I'd recommend looking for a different tour. Overall, great option if you want to do a day trip without the stress of any planning!!

It was a great trip overall (so much so that I booked to go to Olympus and Meteora a few days later). The trip and the guides/driver were all great and very professional. The journey was long (3-3.5 hours each way), but the mini-bus was comfortable with USB plugs, aircon, etc. The monasteries are accessible by vehicle and so there wasn't much walking to do. The restaurant was nice for lunch, but you can wander around the village instead (there is a museum of natural history and mushrooms which was unexpected!). Overall, a really good trip!

Great easy experience to go to the Meteora. Meeting point was easy to find. The bus stopped once on the way to the Meteora. We went to two monastries. We also stopped at a viewing point. The lunch restaurant was good. The bus also stopped once on the way back. The stops are quick and easy. The guide, Lazarus, was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He shared a lot of interesting information during the bus rides.

Extraordinary day. Good guide, excellent pace and way of conducting the bus from Tolis. The driver Places to visit of incredible interest and charm. Very highly recommended Ammon Express !!

The monasteries are impressive. A little more time to walk locally would be great. The landscape is a dream. Our guide was super nice friendly and helpful.
